Game 4: Golden State Warriors 90-103 San Antonio Spurs - 5 Talking Points
#4 The disparity between the teams in 3-point shooting
The Golden State Warriors finished the regular season with the highest field goal percentage (50.3%), highest 3-point shooting percentage (39.1%) and the highest free throw percentage (81.5%). They carried the same shooting form into the playoffs, and it made an impact in the first 3 games.
In game 4, however, they did not have the Klay-off (Klay going off from 3-point territory), resulting in only 7 made 3-pointers out of 28 attempts. Draymond Green was really wasteful, missing a number of crucial 3-pointers to go 0-for-6 from downtown.
Klay himself shot poorly by his standards, going 2-of-6. The only shooter from Golden State to register a relatively okay 3-point shooting night was Kevin Durant, who took 13 tries for 4 makes.
The Spurs, on the other hand, finally started making 3-pointers this series. After finishing the first 3 games with a 3-point percentage of 24.6%, they made 15 out of 28 tries on the night for a great shooting night overall.
